1. Yes, your servers will be down until 2pm Eastern (May be earlier depending on when they start). This will happen EVERY Tuesday! (5AM-11AM PST)

2. Yes, continue to post questions/comments (except about FFXI vs WoW).

3. No, even if you're able to log-in you won't be able to play, unless they happen to bring them online earlier than anticipated.

4. No, Do not whine about your servers. <--- Important

5. Yes, maintenance time is an estimate at best. If your servers do not come up at the scheduled time, refer to #4.

6. Yes, the Official WoW Forums (O-boards) will be down during the course of maintenance as well (submitted by:mohenjodari the Mighty)


EDIT: Euro Maintenance:

I posted this on another thread, but this one seems like a better spot:

This maintenance may actually have more to it than a normal tuesday, as apparently there is a major exploit happening in game. You can read the player base investigation of the exploit here:

http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.asp...153&P=1

There are lots of worries about a server rollback (of 3 or more days) on the Wow official general forums. So, just hope all this is is a maintenance and fix to the exploit, and not more.

Could this obligitory exploit be the one where characters are able to change the base damage or their weapons, or the one where they can be any class they want at any time? O.o

I got into a funny little discussion last night in General with some guy who thinks (honestly) that Blizzard should move the weekly maintenance day, because it's his day off.

I'm...serious. I was speechless after he said that, because I couldn't believe something that stupid left a human's mouth.

Bring me donuts :(

Question:

It allows me to log in, then made me choose a realm, but my character is not there? Will everything go back to normal when they are back up?

She could make it die >_> ROFL! But then another would pop up probably lol.

Anyways, nice that it is a sticky now... but is it going to remain that way? Would be great if you could get up early and just sticky it for tuesday maintenance...

Yes it's Wednesday morning, 3:47 am PDT and after authentication it takes you to the character page, cant seem to connect completely to the realm listed. The characters never show and you are then disconnected. You are not the only one :)

WoW websites Realm status forum has this:

Quote:
Starting with scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, May 10, 2005, all scheduled maintenance will be performed with a new schedule that begins at 5 AM and ends at 11 AM PDT. This will allow us the window of time we need to perform the necessary maintenance tasks to our infrastructure as part of our continued efforts in improving realm stability and performance. We realize that this is inconvenient, yet we believe that it will result in an overall improvement for our player base.


I would assume everything off that then. Eastern time zone is -5, i believe Pacific is -8 GMT. depending on whether you observe DST, you can find your own separation from GMT and do the math. (notice that the times listed are in PDT not PST.)

Addendum re: Europe

Quote:
As a reminder, a weekly technical maintenance is scheduled on all Realms every Wednesday morning. We try to keep the downtime due to this weekly maintenance in the time frame starting from 5:00 am until 11:00 am CEST (Central European Summer Time). If a patch is applied during maintenance, then the window will be from 3:00 am until 11:00 am CEST.


~io

EDIT: just noticed it says Tuesday... let me check deeper, i'm clearly clueless.

ReEDIT: Added quote from WoW EU (English) page.

its wednesday for euro servers, like Hellscream - i did say in another post in this thread that you can usually get back onto the server about 9 - 9.30am wednesday mornings.... maybe longer if there is a big patch or something, but generally 9.30am (uk summer time) is about right.
